You know, these people are soooooo dumb. It’s hard to comprehend their dumbness. Sorry, but how do you work as a News Anchor for one of the major cable news outlets, the kind that repeats every story about 10 times per hour, and not realize the Pope has apologized?
The reason (I suspect) that Kyra Phillips is so dumb is that she looked at the equally dumb Time Magazine, which ran a cover story saying “Being Pope means never having to say you’re sorry”. So, game over, Kyra knows what to say now. And it doesn’t matter that the Pope has apologized about a million times now. She saw the cover of a magazine.
Kyra Phillips of CNN today claimed that the Pope has failed to apologize for the sex abuse scandal. Not only is that a lie but it’s an outrageous one in that the Pope has apologized numerous times.
The Pope has apologized more for the abuse scandal than Obama apologizes for being American. And that’s saying something.
Newsbusters has the offensive transcript:
PHILLIPS: Okay. As you just heard, the Pope is asking for forgiveness, but still, there are two simple words we haven’t heard: I’m sorry.
CNN’s Paula Newton, live in Rome- so Paula, why can’t the Pope just say, I’m sorry for this global sex scandal?
And believe it or not it gets worse from there.
Matthew Balan reports:
Newton then compounded Phillips’s falsehood by answering, “Centuries of theology says that he can’t. A very formal mea culpa was really not going to happen here, Kyra, although that’s what victims’ groups said that they wanted.”
Centuries of theology prevent the Pope from apologizing? Are these people so ignorant that they could actually believe that or do they just hate the Church so much that they don’t care about their own credibility?
Ladies and Gentlemen, I present CNN: Some of the most ignorant people every to blabber on about whatever their pea-sized brains can grasp.
